LOOT.BET HotShot Series S1 with $20,000 prize pool

A new tournament series, called 'LOOT.BET HotShot', has been announced, with the first edition featuring $20,000 in prize money.

Organised by QuickFire, the company behind SuperNova CS:GO Malta, the tournament is a follow-up to the Grand Hotshots, which saw Movistar Riders claim the first prize of over $8,500 after beating 3DMAX in the final.

Yea. This tournament is t2 cuz their is only 3 tiers to the pro scene. T1 = big name brands that get invites and attend big events regularly. RNG North BIG Mibr Astralis Liquid etc. then t2= luminosity bravado; mainstream teams that have to go through quals and make it occasionally. Then t3 is local teams that haven’t made it intl yet
